In a time where everyone is focused on negatives, The Ally Coalition is ready to highlight some positives in 2020 with the help of some of their favorite artists.

On Tuesday (Dec. 15), The Ally Coalition announced their seventh annual Talent Show, a livestream event set to raise money for various LGBTQ youth programs around the country. The show, which will be hosted on songwriter and organization co-founder Jack Antonoff's Twitch channel, will feature a lineup of stars from music and comedy, delivering some of their best material to encourage fans to donate.

The event's lineup of musical guests includes stars like St. Vincent, The Chicks, Rufus Wainwright, Lana Del Rey, Clairo,  Hayley Williams, Tierra Whack, Brittany Howard, Muna, Maggie Rogers, Shamir, Big Red Machine, Bleachers, Sleater-Kinney, Blu DeTiger, Claud, Andrew Dost, Spoon, Wallows and a few surprise guests. The event will also feature comedians like Kalen Allen, Mike Birbiglia, Aidy Bryant, Chris Laker, The Lucas Bros., Jacqueline Novak, Reggie Watts and Roy Wood Jr. providing one-minute standup sets, and Rachael Ray sharing a special one-minute recipe.

Along with getting to see some iconic performances, fans will also get the opportunity to win a signed guitar from Jack Antonoff by either donating to The Ally Coalition, or by taking actions from the organization to help end conversion therapy. Additionally, all fans who donate $10 or more will be entered to win a pair of Bose headphones.

“The TAC talent show is the night of the year I look forward to most," Antonoff said in a statement. "Obviously we can't meet in person this year, but the money this show raises is more important than ever, considering how disproportionately marginalized communities have been affected by the pandemic ... Play it loud and have a party at home cause this one is gonna be something else.”

The Ally Coalition's seventh annual Talent Show will be streamed on Jack Antonoff's Twitch channel Monday, Dec. 21, at 9 p.m. ET. To learn more about the event, click here.
